SYNOPSIS AND CATALOG OF THE

THYSANOPTERA OF NORTH AMERICA

By J. R. WATSON


PREFACE

In 1902 Dr. W. L. Hinds published his classical "Monograph of
the Thysanoptera of North America." In 1911 Moulton pub-
lished his valuable "Synopsis, Catalogue, and Bibliography of
North American Thysanoptera."
These two works have been the chief guides to the workers in
this group for the last decade and longer. But Moulton's work is
now out of date. To what extent it is out of date may be judged
from the fact that whereas it contains but 40 genera and 118
species, the present work enumerates 86 genera and over 300
species. The descriptions of the new species and the changes in
nomenclature resulting from the work of Hood, Morgan, Bagnall,
Treherne and others are widely scattered thru many publications.
To index this scattered literature and bring the keys up to date
is the object of this paper.
In 1922 Dr. H. Karny of Java did a great service to all thy-
sanopterists by the publication of his key to the genera and
higher groups of the order. The key to the genera in the present
publication, for the most part, is only a translation of Karny's
work, with minor changes, and the addition of a few genera
described since Karny's article was written. These additions
are the author's, not Karny's. In this key those genera not at
present known to occur in North America are printed in smaller
type. Families not represented at all in North America have
been omitted. In the work of translating this key the author
has had the cooperation of E. W. Berger, entomologist of the
State Plant Board of Florida. The translations have been com-
pared with one by R. C. Treherne of the Division of Entomology
of the Canadian Department of Agriculture. The rendition of
Professor Treherne was adopted in numerous instances.
In the preparation of this work the author has enjoyed the
most painstaking and hearty cooperation of Professor Treherne







Florida Agricultural Experiment Station


and Dr. Karny. Without their generous cooperation the work
would have been still more incomplete than it doubtless is. They
both have added many species to the list, and aided greatly with
the bibliography and synonymy.
The work was intended to cover all of North America from
the southern boundary of Mexico north, including the West
Indies. There have also been included many species at present
known only from Panama, as it seems likely that they may be
found in the West Indies, or even southern Florida, or are liable
to be carried there.
In the bibliography no attempt has been made to list all the
older works, especially those listed in Hind's Monograph, as that
work is still available and indispensable to a thysanopterist.
The author's genus Karnyothrips was originally described as
Karnyia, but Dr. Karny calls the author's attention to the fact
that the name is preoccupied by a genus of orthoptera. For the
same reason Karny has changed the author's genus Dolicothrips
to Watsoniella.
The figures following an author's name refer to the corre-
sponding dates in the bibliography. No attempt has been made
to refer to all the literature recording the host plants and locali-
ties of capture. For such references the reader is referred to
the works of the various authors, especially Morgan, '13, and
Treherne for British Columbia. Localities and host plants here
listed for the first time are placed at the end, and are separated
from the others by a semicolon and a dash (;-).
Since the receipt of Karny's key the writer has gone over all
the species in his collection and brought the nomenclature into
harmony with this work. This has necessitated shifting several
species, including some of those described by the author to differ-
ent genera.
The genus Idolothrips is (according to Karny) now restricted
to Australian species. The generic position of many American
species formerly included in this genus is doubtful. They have
been referred to the most likely genus. Ultimately new genera
will probably have to be erected for some of them.
Dr. Karny first called the writer's attention to the probability
of Dictyothrips reticulatus Crawford as being a Ctenothrips. An
examination of the figures accompanying Crawford's description
leaves no doubt of its being a Ctenothrips instead of a Dictyo-
thrips (misspelled Dictothrips in Moulton, '11.) The reticulations
are confluent, transverse ridges, rather than the characteristic








Bulletin 168, Thysanoptera of North America 5

polygonal areas of the Heliothripinae. The posterior angles of
the prothorax, moreover, bear heavy bristles. Dictyothrips flori-
densis is also probably a Ctenothrips. The pronotum is covered
with polygonal areas in every way similar to those of the Helio-
thripinae, but those on the head and abdomen and most of those
on the pterothorax, are of the Ctenothrips type. This species
is thus interesting as showing an approach to the Heliothripinae.
Dictyothrips will thus have to be dropped from the list of North
American genera.
A number of new genera, species, and varieties are described
herein. These descriptions will be found near the end of the
bulletin.

than the facets of the eyes. Mouth cone reaching the middle of he pro-
thorax, sharp-pointed; maxillary palpi geniculate, 7-segmented; labial palpi
3-segmented. Antennae 9-segmented; 2.5 times as long as the head, dark
brown, concolorous with the head except segment 3 which is bright yellow
excepting a brown cloud at the extreme apex and a colorless ring at the
base just above the pedicel and the apex of 2 which is lighter brown with
bright red pigment in the membrane, 8 and 9 a little paler. Segment 1
cylindrical, 2 urn-shaped with a broad pedicel, 3 elongate wedge-shaped wita
straight sides abruptly contracted to a narrow pedicel, 4-7 cylindrical, 8
conical; sense areas on segments 3-8, those on 3-6 long and narrow, the one
on 3 extending thruout the apical half of the segment, on 4 the apical .6, on
5 and 6 the apical third, those on 7 and 8 short oval. All segments closely
set with rather short bristles, those on 3 colorless, on 8 and 9 pale, on the
other segments dark.
Prothorax about as wide as long, no conspicuous bristles but numerous
minute ones, except the fore coxae each of which has three stout bristles on
the outer angle. Legs long and slender, fore femora scarcely enlarged; dark
brown, tarsi a little lighter; clothed with numerous short hairs which are

entirely within this dark band.
Abdomen broadly elliptical, broadening abruptly to segment 4 and
tapering more gradually posteriorly. Long black bristles on the last two
segments only.
Male not seen.

Described from a single female taken from agave flowers at Tlahualilo,
Durango, Mexico, by F. F. Bibby on May 10, 1923.
Undoubtedly cogeneric with Erythrothrips arizonae Moulton but the
description of that genus given by Moulton ('11) will have to be modified
in respect to the 8-segmented maxillary palpi. This species can readily be
distinguished by the yellow third antennal segment.

Heterothrips mexicanus n. sp.

Female (macropterous). Length about 1.3 mm. Color dark brown, tar-
si, tips of middle and hind tibiae, most of fore tibiae, and tip of fore femora,

Head about 1.5 times as wide as long, width behind the eyes only a
trifle greater than the distance across them. Cheeks decidedly convex and
markedly contracted posteriorly, roughened, and with two conspicuous, thick
but short, curved spines behind the eyes; occiput with five strong striae ex-
tending entirely across, not anastomosing; postocular bristles minute; a pair
of somewhat longer bristles midway between the anterior and posterior
ocelli, and a minute pair in front of the anterior ocellus. Eyes large, occupy-
ing fully two-thirds the length and nearly two-thirds the width of the head,
setose, facets large. Ocelli yellow, the anterior situated opposite the an-
terior third of the eyes, somewhat smaller than an ocular facet. The pos-
terior near the posterior border of the eye, very large, twice the diameter
of the anterior and much larger than an ocular facet. Antennae 2.6 times
as long as the head; segments 1, 2, and 5-9 concolorous with the head, 3 and
4 light grayish yellow, 4 shaded with brown on the pedicel and with a brown
ring just below the ring of sensoria; segment 3 three times as long as the
greatest width (across the apex), sharply constricted in the basal fifth and
two-fifths, 4 oblong with a distinct, thick pedicel, 5-7 ovate, tapering to a
broad pedicel at the base, 8 barrel-shaped, not pedicellate, 9 conical. Seg-
ment 1 bears a few dark and rather conspicuous but short bristles, all others
pale and inconspicuous.
Prothorax nearly a third longer than the head, lateral and posterior
borders very convex and bearing a number of short, thick bristles, those

Florida Agricultural Experiment Station


Abdomen rather long. Pubescens on faint anastomosing lines, numer-
ous on only the posterior segments. Sides of the posterior margins of seg-
ments 2-7 fringed with contiguous chitinous scales whose apical margins
are evenly fringed with spines which are as long as the scales. In the mid-
dle of the margins are a few minute bristles which on segments 7 and 8
are long and conspicuous. Sternites fringed with slender bristles which are
shorter than those on the dorsal side of segments 7 and 8. At the sides,
these spines are always fused at the base into about a dozen scales similar
to those on the dorsal side.
Male: Similar to the female but smaller. Near the anterior margins
of abdominal sternites 2-7 are long, oval,, transparent areas which extend
nearly a third of the width of the sternites.
Measurements: Total length 1 mm. Head length .107, width .145 mm;

Described from numerous females and males collected from flowers of
Sphaeralcea cuspidata and Sida hederacea at Tlahualilo, Durango, Mexico,
by F. F. Bibby.
Very close to H. pectinifer Hood, described from Arizona but differs in
the color of the fore tibiae, the fourth antennal segment, which is also
considerably shorter, in the greater fusion of the. spines on the abdominal
sternites, in the scarcely anastomosing striae of the head which extend into
the ocellar region and in the larger extent of the white area of the wings.
Chirothrips floridensis var. catchingsi, n. var.
Differs from the species in having two stout bristles at the posterior
angle of the prothorax and in the shape of the seventh antennal segment.
In the variety this is larger and its base is nearly as wide as the apex of
segment 6 and gradually narrowed anteriorly. In the species this segment
is smaller and little if any wider at the base than at the apex.
In the presence of two stout bristles at the posterior angles of the pro-
thorax this variety approaches C. manicatus but the bristles are weaker. In
all three there are three bristles on each posterior angle and they differ in
size only. In all three the middle bristle is small. In manicatus the others
are subequal in length and about as long as the eyes. In floridensis and
the variety the anterior is about half as long as the eyes. In the new*
variety the posterior is about as long as the anterior but in floridensis but
little larger than the middle bristle. These differences appear very constant.
Described from 11 females captured on grass by Thos. F. Catchings
at New Orleans, La.
Sedulothrips hubbelli n. sp.
Color, almost uniform dark brown, but with red hypodermal pigment,
especially on abdomen, and a large white spot at each fore angle of segments
3-8. Antennae a lighter brown especially in middle of segments 3-5, no
yellow anywhere. Apical half of tube and wings lighter.
Measurements: Total body length 3.3 mm.; head, length .54 mm.;
width .26 mm.; prothorax, length .22 mm., width .47 mm.; mesothorax,

Head twice as long as wide, much the widest across the eyes, cheeks
widest a short distance behind the eyes, cheeks gently arcuate with short
collar at base. Roughened with low protuberances and short bristles. Post-
ocular bristle about half as long as the eyes, with dilated tips.
Eyes finely and closely faceted, non-pilose, markedly protruding, deep
red by reflected light. Ocelli far forward, equidistant. Antennae 1.7 times
as long as head, very slender and long. Segments 1 and 2 cylindrical, 2
abruptly thickened in the middle; 3-5 clavate, abruptly narrowed to a wide
collar at apex; 6 clavate, shorter than 7 and 8 together; 7 sub-cylindrical,
tapering apically; 8 conical. Sense cones on segments 3-5 a little over
one-fourth the length of segment 3, pale yellow, the accompanying bristle
longer and darker. Mouth cone very long and slender, reaching far past the
prosternum.
Prothorax deeply emarginate in front, bristles rather short, heavy,
with dilated tips. Mesothorax sub-quadrangular, sides nearly straight and
parallel. Metathorax slightly narrower, sides strongly arched and narrowed
posteriorly. Wings long, brown, fore wings with a clear spot on the pos-
terior half above the scale and along the opposite costal margin. Fringing
hairs long and extending to the widened base, 22 to 35 interlocated ones.
Apical half of both pairs lighter except along the middle. Legs long and
slender. Fore femora considerably enlarged, greatly so in male.
Abdomen very long and slender, marginal bristles stout, sharp-pointed,
those on segment 9 about twice as long as the tube. Tube about half as long
as head, terminal bristles about as long as the tube. Male similar to female.
Described from about forty females and several males collected from
rubber trees along Tela Railroad in Honduras by T. H. Hubbell.
Similar to Sedulothrips vigilans (Hood) but different in color, the more
protruding eyes, mouth cone, and heavy abdominal bristles and in many
other characteristics. In color it approaches Sedulothrips insolens (Bag-
nall), but in other characteristics is closer to vigilans.

Neoeurhynchothrips n. gen.
Head longer than broad but a little longer than the prothorax. Frons
elevated and bearing the ocelli well forward, anterior ocellus directed for-
ward. Mouth cone large, reaching the mesosternum, sides very straight.
Antennae 8-segmented, all segments well separated.
Prothorax about one and a half times as broad as long, with a long
bristle on each posterior angle. Fore femora somewhat enlarged. Fore
tarsi unarmed. Wings of equal breadth thruout except for a shallow but
plain constriction above the scale. Abdomen long; tube short, but little
more than half the length of the head.
In the large mouth cone this genus approaches Eurhynchothrips Bag-
nall, but differs in the longer head and prothorax and the swollen fore
femora. In the long prothorax it approaches Rhynchothrips Hood, but dif-
fers in the distinct seventh and eighth antennal segments. From Arrheno-
thrips Hood it differs in lacking tarsal teeth.
Type Neoeurhynchothrips cubensis n. sp.

Head a little longer than broad, widest at the base, cheeks straight
or even slightly concave, either converging or diverging posteriorly. Dor-
sum faintly sculptured with anastomosing lines. Vertex not overhanging
the bases of the antennae. Postocular bristles long, in common with most
prominent bristles of the body blunt. Posterior to each postocular is a
row of five small bristles. Eyes rather small, occupying only about a fourth
of the length of the head, non-pilose, facets of moderate size. Ocelli situated
far forward, the posterior pair anterior to the middle of the eyes, sur-
rounded by deep orange pigment. Mouth cone very long, reaching the
mesothorax, with straight sides. Antennae about one and one-half times
as long as the head. Segment 1 a short truncated cone, 2 cylindrical with
a very broad pedicel, 3 triangular in outline, 4-7 urn-shaped, 8 conical,
sharply and abruptly contracted at about the middle of the inner edge, deeply
crenulated. Hairs and sense cones rather short, the latter colorless.
Prothorax almost as long as the head, one and a half times as wide
as long. Pronotum, posteriorly, faintly striate with anastomosing lines.
Posterior angles well rounded and bearing a very long, curved, yellow,
bristle. Near the curved posterior margin are two other pairs of bristles,
the middle pair short, the outer two-thirds as long as those at the angles.
A strong bristle on each coxa, a row of four moderately long-pointed ones
near the anterior margin and one near each lateral margin. Legs, espe-
cially the fore pair, rather short.
Wings very short; membrane only about half as long as the abdomen.
That of the fore pair brown, darker at the base, posterior vein darker.
Three strong bristles at the base of the anterior margin. Fringing hairs
rather sparse but moderately long, absent from the basal fourth. From
five to seven interlocated bristles on the posterior margin. Membrane of
the posterior pair clear except at the extreme base.
Abdomen long and heavy; cylindrical. Each posterior angle of each
segment bears a long bristle with blunt or dilated tip; those on segment
9 much longer than the tube. A little toward the mid-dorsal line from this
bristle on segments 2-9 is a similarly long bristle and still farther toward
the mid-dorsal line a dark, sigmoid, sharp-pointed one. Tube short, but
little more than half as long as the head, sides straight, sharply converging
posteriorly. Terminal bristles about as long as the tube, sharp-pointed.
Larvae yellow with much red hypodermal pigment.
Described from four females taken at Philadelphia on Uriesia sp.
from Cuba by Max Kisliuk of the Federal Horticultural Board.

W idth ...--.........-..- .......... 35 32 29 36 33 30 27 19 microns
Described from two females collected from Sphaeralcea cuspidata at
Tlahualilo, Durango, Mexico, by F. F. Bibby after whom the species is
named.
Somewhat close to L. ocellatus (Hood) but differs in the sharp-pointed
bristles, smaller size, and many other characters. A very distinct species.
In color this species shows a remarkable resemblance to L. caryce Fitch,
the resemblance even extending to the shading on the antennal segments.
The shape of the abdomen will readily distinguish them.

Haplothrips orlando has been made the type of a new genus, which is
named for Prof. R. C. Treherne, the Canadian thysanopterist.

TREHERNIELLA

Head about as long as wide; cheeks rounded, with a few short spines
which arise from barely visible tubercles. Eyes fairly large, protruding;
interval between them not nearly equal to their dorsal width. Antennae







82 Florida Agricultural Experiment Station

8-segmented, segments rather short, 8th subpedicellate. Mouth cone short,
barely reaching the middle of posternum, broadly rounded at the apex.
Pronotum considerably shorter than the head, over twice as broad
across posterior angles (inclusive of coxae) as median dorsal length, pos-
terior and anterior margins concentric. Fore femora somewhat enlarged
in the female, much so in the male, fore tarsi armed with a stout tooth
which is larger in the male than in the female. Wings with long fringing
hairs, with a good series (19 in the type species) of interlocated ones on
fore wings. Membrane not at all or barely constricted in the middle, much
wider toward the end than at the base.
This genus is close to Gastrothrips and Cryptothrips. It agrees with
the former in the short head and prothorax, but differs in the large eyes,
short mouth cone, and fringes on the wing. It differs from Crypothrips in
the short head and prothorax, and the armed fore tarsi.
Type. Haplothrips orlando Watson and Osborn
